Slider Dolly in Production MADE IN THE USA

Slider Dolly ProductionJust starting a new run of EZ Sliders. Lots of work still to do yet. All of our products are manufactured in the USA by EZ FX and we strive to keep our shelves stocked. Rarely do we have a back order.

Impressive Camera Crane, Brave Camera Man

Camera crane over damThis can give chills just looking at the photo.  This rig looks to be on a dam type structure.  The impressive crane is lifting both the camera and a camera operator.    That much of a load requires a lot of counter weights as you can in front of the crane operator.   Obviously this is a 2 man operation.    We provide pan and tilt controls that can be operated by joystick from the crane operator in the rear.   I’m sure they had the same option and had a reason to block the shot this way.    We have 2 remote control models, one for small and one large cameras (RPT 25 and RPT 15).    Check out our remote controls  to learn more.

Camera Crane / Jib Arm in Multi Camera Production

Camera Crane Mult CameraCamera cranes and Jib arms work great in multi camera environments.  They provide the movement that Jibs and Cranes are know for but also they provide great coverage allowing the camera to be re positioned quickly for static shots from multiple angles.    TV Shows, Church services, Events, Concerts and sporting events all benefit from Jib arms and Camera cranes.

Camera Crane at Woodstock…

Camera Crane woodstockHere is a pic of an Old school camera crane at Woodstock.   It looks like it was used simply as a stationary shot.   Too crowded to get very much movement.    The camera man looks like hes cool with that as he enjoys a good view of the band.  We wonder if it was Hendrix.  We love the sun visor on the camera too.   How times have changed.     Thanks to Stewart for sending us this one.

Student Demo: Jib – Cranes – Slider


Today, we had a good time giving an equipment demonstration of our Camera Crane, Jib arm and Slider Dolly to some of the students at the Mid Florida Technical College.   We know the future of media production is in the education of today’s students and these guys sure have a wonderful array of tools to learn with.   What an impressive facility from top to bottom.   It is unbelievable how this industry has evolved over the last 30 years.   It seems like yesterday when S-VHS was the best quality anyone could afford without breaking the bank.   Now our cellphones can shoot in 4K.   The tools I saw today for creating virtual worlds, gaming and simulation just blew my mind.   Thanks Alan for the invite.

Thank you JT for this pic of the EZ Jib, Extension Kit and RPT 25 remote head being used as an event style camera crane.  Our new EZ Crane is also a good camera crane for water sports which are now very popular.   On this video production our camera jib is working double duty with 2 video cameras. Notice the GoPro attached on the end. Good Stuff JT . Thanks…

A new batch of Camera Cranes and Jib Arms

Production is flowing smoothly at EZ FX.  Our new EZ Crane camera crane is well on its way and getting a lot of positive responses and reviews.     A new batch is currently in production and should be ready soon.   We strive to keep all products in stock and available for quick delivery.  That’s our goal for not just our camera crane but our Jib arm and Slider Dolly too.

A new batch

Riding a Camera Crane

Strattle camera  CraneThis camera crane  technique is yet another that falls into the “not advised” category.   No reference to a production but it is yet another example of a filmmakers determination to get the shot.    Camera cranes and jib arms have been around since the early days of film production and many were designed to ride upon.  This one seems like the grip department had to do some improvising to make it functional.
